Akosha Swimwear is based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and handmade in Miami, Florida and Dallas, Texas. Designer Anna Newsome is addicted to the city and the beach..where she finds inspiration for all of her contemporary pool party attire. Anna Newsome grew up sewing and sketching from as early as 9 years young in her small town in Oklahoma. She found her love for fashion in Vogue magazines and knew there was more to retail then what Oklahoma had to offer. So she packed her bags at 20 and found herself going to the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale for Fashion Design. Immediately she was enticed by the culture, her freedom of fashion, and of course swim wear. Anna always had a nack for finding the most high fashion suits in Miami to sport at the pool parties… But she wanted to wear something different and offer the scene a twist on a one piece suit. She sat at her coffee table and sketched up her whole line within a few days and began picking out some crazy textiles in Miami. So proud and excited, her friends urged her to get them made.. so she did! Once the pieces were done she uploaded them to instagram and BOOM! Miami swim Week called two weeks later! And here we are now! We’re so excited to be sharing this new 2018 collection with all of you contemporary babes! Have an awesome day!
